I have decided to join in on this new monthly feature created by Avalinah’s Book. State of the ARC for me is a little sad.

Lets look at my stats:

NetGalley -11/28 overdue 39%
Edelweiss 9/16 overdue 56%
Total 20/44 overdue 46%

I don’t have large numbers of books from Netgalley or Edelweiss. I am super picky, as we all should be, about the books I want to invest time in. I am still behind though. What am I going to do about it, that’s the question isn’t it?

In October I plan to read:

My list includes a few overdue books just because now I can see I really need to get them off my list. I have a few that I DNF’d that I really need to just take off the list. Should I put a post together about them, or just send a little note to publisher? Do you really want to see why I DNF’d these books and which ones didn’t make the cut?

I should say that I am not going to request anymore books until I get this under control but that would be a flat out lie. I will probably also purchase a bunch of backlist books and try to squeeze them in just because I am really smart. *winky face*

Also, I need to mention that I downgraded my Goodreads challenge reading goal this past month.


Yes! I could juts do that and I have no regrets. I am too far behind to hit that number so instead of having it mock me for the rest for the rest of the year, I downgraded it. Now my progress pleases me.

Anyways, that the State of the ARC for me this month. I would love to see how you are doing? Leave a me a comment so we can cry about our stats together, because I know #thestruggleisreal and it isn’t just me.
